My System Specs

Default 9800gx2 1024mb

Ok so I want to know if this card is out yet, the reason I' asking this cause on another forum I go on, some one has one for sale and has pics of it.
But I tried to look at NCIX and other computer stores online and no one has it, or maybe I just missed it.

anyone seen one yet, and price.

Yeah, you're right- I wonder how he came by it... there are some accusations of the seller screwing someone over with the card already, but in this ad, it's pickup only

Which also means "cash only" so good luck getting your $850 bucks back if the deal goes sour.

This does smell a little bit.... Even if it's a review unit, no reputable reviewer is going to be putting it up for sale in RedFlag.

See thats why I was wondering about it. for $850 bucks thats alot of cash to thro away if it goes bad.
Cause I did not see any online for sale at any pc store's, so was wondering where he got it from.
And like sswilson said above.
Oh i see he has add more pics of the card and his name by it.

I just sent him a message, to see if he could get anymore. Will see what he tells me.
do you think that the numbers, (meaning speeds of card) are going to be bad.
Sorry for any bad spelling, just a little tired.. but want to know.

Nvidia 9800GX2 clocks revealed - The INQUIRER

Keep in mind the source of this, but it's speculated that it is like two 8800GTS in SLI -

The two PCB solution isn't as elegant as the ATI equivalent

Keep your eyes on the reviews about a week from now.

it isn't out yet and there are no drivers for it yet. Waste of money. The card is suppose to be around 600. I think it is suppose to come out march 18 as one ad stated.
